Cycle across remote steppes
At a glance
9 nights wild camping, 2 nights comfortable hotels, 2 nights traditional Mongolian gers, 1 night sleeper train
Cycle across the vast expanse of the Mongolian steppeland
Mongolia remains a mysterious presence in the heart of Central Asia, a traditional country where visitors are still an unusual sight. Nomads wander the grasslands, setting up their white gers (tents) where the pasture is lush for their horses. On our bikes, we follow good trails across wide, open steppe, into expansive mountain scenery and through larch and pine forests. Camping wild under the wide skies adds an adventurous edge to what is certainly one of our most intrepid cycle tours.
